Businessman, married and with a son: the man for whom Rosario Porto lost her head

After the success of The Body on Fire, a series based on the high-profile crime of the Urban Police, Netflix wanted to once again bet on a new fiction that would narrate one of the most high-profile events in the black chronicle of our country, the murder of Asunta Basterra . The 12-year-old girl was murdered by her own parents, Alfonso Basterra and Rosario Porto, in 2013.

Although neither the journalist nor the lawyer confessed to the crime, both were sentenced to 18 years in prison for the murder of their own daughter. Since the series by Candela Peña and Tristán Ulloa premiered on the streaming platform, Teo's crime has returned to the center of the media spotlight and new information about the convicted comes to light every day.

This Tuesday, May 14, the Sonsoles Ónega program once again addressed the media crime. On this occasion, the Antena 3 program exclusively broadcast Rosario Porto's full statement before the judge and in which she revealed in great detail what the man with whom she had begun a love story was like, which lasted until the day. from before the murder.

''I knew at all times that he was married, he never cheated on me, he told me that he planned to leave his family (...) I had a kind of blackmail from my husband. "My ex-husband reacted by trying to locate his family to tell his family things and to try to ruin his marriage," declared Rosario Porto.

According to the Sonsoles Ónega space, the man with whom Rosario had a relationship for a year was 52 years old. He was a married businessman with a newborn son. ''I wouldn't call it a relationship, but a series of intermittent encounters,'' the lawyer confessed in her statement.

They met on a business trip in Morocco and, following their first meeting, they began hanging out. The last one occurred a day before Asunta's death. ''I had met someone for lunch and I was with her in the afternoon,'' he said. This relationship marked the end of her marriage and triggered Alfonso Basterra's alleged blackmailing of her ex-wife's lover.
